Beschreibungen

SO,WHAT WOULDN'T BEN STEIN DO? There are so many terrible ideas to avoid. For instance, Ben Stein wouldn't marry someone who refused to work or was a diva or had a drug problem. Any of those choices would be really bad. He wouldn't spend his entire paycheck and leave his bank account empty. He wouldn't arrive late to an appointment. (Most definitely not!) He wouldn't drive an ugly car. He's fairly certain he wouldn't pierce any part of his face. He also wouldn't preserve tax cuts and expect money to trickle down from the sky. And he would never invite a drunken stranger into his home (again). What Would Ben Stein Do? Read this book, and find out. His answers to your questions about life, work, money, relationships, and everything in between are all inside.
